We all had Monday off work/school for Martin Luther King Day so we went to local roller rink to rollerblade!
Carter wanted to learn how to skate backward:
We also hit Jason’s Deli and the library, where Raine made this paper dragon.
December 22 – finishing some Christmas shopping at the Galleria.
December 27, Daddy took the kids to Urban Air trampoline park.
Carter loved the jousting. Here is a video of Raine vs Carter as well as Raine on the obstacle course.
On December 28 we spent the day at Mountasia, enjoying the warm, windy weather. I took the wide-angle and fish-eye lenses for my cellphone that DJ gave me for Christmas so I got some photos with all of us in it, like this one on the go-carts.
Kids vs parents flag football game on January 1. The kids were winning (we were at a disadvantage because their flags are a whole lot lower than our hands) when the game came to an abrupt end due to Raine skinning her knee on the sidewalk.
The kids did a lot of rollerblading over the holiday break. On January 2 they convinced me to go with them to the parking lot at the school. Carter let me ride his scooter since I don’t have rollerblades.
We had some gorgeous weather over the break. The kids made me dig out their shorts so they didn’t sweat too much while playing outside!
Our Christmas-Eve-party turned News-Year-Eve-party was a blast. We started with dinner that included make-your-own quesadillas, tacos, nachos, and tamales.
I took a couple terrible photos during various events but didn’t warn people that I was taking them!
Melt-downs started shortly after 8:00 and everyone was gone by 8:30, that’s how it goes with the under-5 crowd!
